Meeting: Using EasiWriter

November 2005

Following accusations that it might be a little idiosyncratic in use, Ian Chamberlain gave us a demonstration of EasiWriter – RISC OS’s often-misunderstood wordprocessor. He started by explaining the ideas behind structures, and how their use can help an author worry about the content of their document instead of its presentation, before turning the theory into practice. By the end of the evening, those in the audience with copies of EasiWriter – or its sibling TechWriter – gathering dust had been tempted to give them another look.
